Hey,

I've just installed KDE 4.5.3 on a FreeBSD 6.1 system.

I'm having problem getting an x-window from another PC when I'm connected to 
that PC via telnet (with ssh -X .... everything works fine)

When I telnet to the other machine and export/setenv my DISPLAY environment 
towards the display I'm telnetting from, I get the following error.

xterm Xt error: Can't open display: 10.0.0.250:0.0

I've already tried to change the kdmrc by removing the -nolisten tcp or 
commenting out

ServerArgsLocal=-nolisten tcp

but this does not seem to work either....when I reboot, it even undoes all the 
changes I've made to the file (as root)

Anybody can give me some advise on what I need to do to accept incoming x11 
requests.

x11 packets are received (seen by a tcpdump) but it just does not want to work.

Just for you info, I did not forget the xhost +

Thanks in advance.
Try ssh -Y instead of ssh -X. ssh -X was deprecated some time ago due to security concerns I believe over trusted hosts and X11 forwarding (Google that particular flag because there are a lot of discussion items out there about this).
